Chiefs star Tyreek Hill won’t require surgery on injured collarbone

The Kansas City Chiefs got their 2019 season off to a strong start. They began by cruising past the Jacksonville Jaguars in convincing fashion on Sunday afternoon.

It wasn’t entirely a clean start for the Chiefs as it saw Pro Bowl wide receiver Tyreek Hill suffer a collarbone injury that will force him to miss the next few weeks, according to Adam Teicher of ESPN.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill suffered a collarbone injury that will not require surgery but will cause him to “miss a few weeks,” a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Sunday.

Hil had suffered the injury late in the first half. He got hurt after being tackled near the sidelines when he landed on Jaguars star cornerback Jalen Ramsey. He was taken carted off the field and taken to Baptist Medical Center where he was further evaluated and treated.

Reports concerning the injury have revealed that Hill had suffered a posterior sternoclavicular dislocation. The medical staff at the hospital helped reduce the injury. Although he will avoid surgery, this is an ailment that will keep him off the field for the next few weeks.

The loss of Hill leaves them with a significant piece out of the passing game out of the mix. Hill has been their biggest deep-ball threat. However, the Chiefs possess other strong options such as tight end Travis Kelce and wideout Sammy Watkins, who put together a stellar outing in the season opener in his absence as he nine catches for a career-high 198 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

Watkins became just the fourth player in NFL history to record at least 175 receiving yards and three touchdowns in a single game. Hill’s absence should also see a bigger role for rookie wide receiver Mecole Hardman.
